First batch of holiday cheese

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Since I finally got a smoker that can do some cold smoking and the amps I decided to do my first batch of holiday cheese.  Didn't want to over smoke it so I tried to keep it in for 2-3 hours but had some problems with the cherry pellets and keeping them going.  About the 3rd try they finally took so I hope I'm right on the time but totally guessed.  Did the following cheese:

 

Mild Cheddar

Sharp Cheddar

Coastal Aged Cheddar

Colby / Jack marble

Jarlsberg

 

Now comes the hard part and the wait.  Can't wait to see how it turned out and if I need to adjust times.


Pre smoke

Nice looking cheese.  I do love Cherry smoked cheese and think you will be very happy with it.  Please let us know how it turns out.

That looks great, can I smoke cheese in an MES 40" using the AMNPS pellets and tray?

You can smoke it better than a lot of folks. Don't turn on the MES mix apple and hickory pellets .

2 hrs smoke time for 4 oz blocks.  vac seal for 30 days and great smoked cheese.

That sounds great.  I should have the tray delivered by Wednesday.  Can't wait to try.  I don't have a vacuum sealer though, mine died a couple years ago and I never replaced it.

That's some good looking cheese. Happy Holidays to ya.

 

Also Smoker317 - You can do it without a vac pac it just wrap really tight in saran wrap.
